Etienne Moyat’s work reflects his respect and love of nature. Trained as a cabinetmaker, his first creations were turned wood pieces which brought him recognition and enabled him to create increasingly larger pieces. Unique and monumental, they are intended for high-end projects, private homes, hotels and yachts. Moyat works with tree trunks: he carves, burns, brushes and varnishes the wood; paying it tribute as a living material, a vector of emotion and experience. He tells a story as he reveals the essence of each wood. Paradoxically, his use of the chainsaw as his preferred tool allows for a free and instinctive stroke. His work, intimately linked to time and movement, fills space with flowing lines of energy.
